moving the threshold from the perspective of the obama administration is that really reduces the amount of revenue that you are born to collect to pay down the deficit. makes the argument less meaningful because you do sacrifice a chunk of money. and you have to find the money elsewhere. host: water other sticking points as we talk about the fiscal cliff -- what are the other sticking points as we talk about the fiscal cliff? guest: the things that people agree on, we need to deal with the deficit. and that we would like to do corporate tax reform next year. the task to be extended for household income below $250,000. everything else is a sticking point. neither of these big questions about what can a government which should have, do we want a government that provides medicare and medicaid for everyone that needs it. how do we want to pay for that? had we want to tax people? what is the best way to stimulate the economy? there are all of these ideas floating around. many were litigated during the presidential campaign. they cannot quite a bit during the debate. we heard a lot of taxes.

. there are differences in the responses between the bush administration and obama administration. the immediacy with which the president went to the disaster areas is one the sample. we have been writing, for example, about the failings of the governor in new york, a democrat seen as a potential 2016 candidates. he has taken a lot of criticism, especially in the new york press, but a lot of that has been run nationally as well for the handling of the long island power authority, which provides power to long island. he is responsible for this public authority, but is now lambasting it as it has had trouble. there has been coverage of places where the government has fallen down. could we do better? absolutely. you will see a closer examination as we move away from the immediate damage to people's lives in danger to the rebuilding and slow process that will go on. we of a chance now to look back and look at the decisions that were made during the storm to see where the feelings were. host: going to an orleans calller. susan on the democrats' line. caller: i just wanted to say we were one

bush and obama administrations, our debt went up over $4 trillion just because of these wars that are totally senseless. the loss of life. now there are talking about, what are we going to go in -- we are so much involved with libya. look at what is happening with libya. it want to go to war against iran. i would say, that is the place to have big cuts. we all ought to agree on doing that. i want to raise -- i would not raise taxes. we need to cut spending. if you raise taxes, you're going to have a weaker economy. some of the tax cuts, even for the middle-class occurred for the bush administration. you do not want to raise taxes on the middle class. it will not be enough money. i think you have touched on something. i think we need to deal with the military. we cannot do that unless we change the foreign policy. we are not the world policeman getting involved with all of these countries. i think the american people ought to agree on that issue more readily than anything else. i do not see why we should talk about cutting health care for children or for the elderly and social security

intense focus of the administration. the president had 13 face to face meetings with president obama we have built out an extensive set of mechanisms with channels of communication to work on this relationship and i think it has resulted in a positive and constructive relationship. there will be issues but we put in place a superstructure for the way to manage these issues going forward. i spent an enormous amount of time with the chinese leadership and i think we can have put in place the mechanisms to have a productive and constructive relationship and i look forward to working with the new leadership in beijing. host: related to what he was saying, i want to go back to your piece on foreign affairs -- as the u.s. tries to rebalance its strategic priorities and asia -- explain what that means. guest: it is rebalancing strategic focus on resources. it is a way -- is pointing them away from the middle east. it is clear that u.s. interest in asia is enormous. it is a huge growth area both economically and, obviously, we have many allies of their that would demand more of our attention. i

catholic church. in this state they ignored this attack by the obama administration on religious liberties, which obamacare and -- almost 80% of the catholics in this state voted for liberal democrats, abortion. guy think it was a big problem by the church not speaking out. they seem to be so afraid of lawyers and being sued that they were calworks -- were cowards, especially from the pulpits. they totally neglected it. i don't blame the republicans. i blame the catholic church. host: we are asking republicans only this morning to discuss the future of their party, basically because of all the voices that continued on the weekend, republican voices, leaders of the party talking about what mitt romney has said about why he lost and how to afford. rick santorum, a former pennsylvania senator, writes -- today."n "usa as for another republican voice, marco rubio. this is a store in "politico" this morning. -- a story. there's a little of what the senator had to say.

obama administration of we is fairly fictitious. for the past several decades, even as coal production was increasing to record levels, because of increased mechanization, replacement of underground mining, and now mountaintop removal that destroys the entire mountains and ecosystems in west virginia and other parts of appalachia, using fewer and fewer workers to do that. the corporations, the fossil fuel companies that have an addiction to fossil-based fuels are the ones destroying the jobs of workers, but we need to find ways to transition the workers into new, productive jobs, better sustainable, and are building the clean energy economy for this country. the other part of this question about antiquated building codes and other restrictions, the caller is right. it is medieval bad -- that homeowners are restricted from putting solar panels on their houses that would be part of a transition. it is simply medieval -- similarly medieval that a company has not been able to build the first large-scale offshore wind farm in nantucket sound because a relatively small number of wealthy peop

, but will the obama administration let it happen or turn an oil boom into a bust? welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot. headed into friday, fiscal cliff talks with congressional leaders, president obama gave us a hit list of his negotiations strategies, repeating his intention to immediately raise tax rates on top earners. >> when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars and it's very difficult to see how you make up that trillion dollars if we're serious about deficit reduction, just by closing loopholes and deductions. the math tends not to work. >> paul: but does the president's math add up? let's ask wall street journal columnist bill mcguerin, and analyst steve moore and washington columnist kim strassel. so, kim, the president won reelection, was this the hand of magnimty reaching out to the republicans? >> it's crazy, it's what the president says all the time. if you listen to the press conference, he seems to say the biggest wish list for his

the second obama administration do to encourage job creation? marty? >> i think getting the uncertainty of higher taxes off the table would help. i think corporate tax reform would also help. president obama has said that he would bring the top rate down. the corporate rate down from 35 to 28%. that would get us in line with the the major european economy. that would be a good thing. if we took the next step and went to the international tax rules that every other industrial country has, so-called territorial system, that would encourage american firms to bring back some of the literally more than a trillion dollars of funds that they have sitting outside of the u.s. economy. >> what about the health care legislation? now that president obama has been re-elected, we know obama care, affordable care act is not going anywhere. after all of this debating about it. what impact do you think that will have? >> let me underscore my agreement with marty. we worked together on corporate tax reform in president's economic recovery advisory board and i think it would be very important
